the wiper arms are on a splined shaft so you would have to remove the arm from the shaft and rotate and replace them farther to the left or right to get the position you want most arms are held with a clip device of some kind that is part of the arm its self

How do i adjust the park on the wiper motor on a 97 gmc pickup?

You need to start by disconnecting the wiper arm assembly from the splines on the wiper motor itself. Then you need to jog the motor, once, through its cycle until it stops at its "park" position. Turn off the key switch. Then reconnect the wiper arm assembly to the motor when the wiper blades are in the proper position on the windshield. Turn key back on, and test run the wiper motor to make sure the blades aren't going off the edges and that there is no binding. Adjust as needed. Reinstall all previously removed covers and cowling.

How do you adjust wiper stop position on 1990 Mitsubishi Montero?

One way would be to remove and replace the wiper arm itself. There is usually a cap covering the nut holding on the wiper arm at it's pivot point, remove the cap, followed by the nut. Then pry the wiper arm off it's spline gear, and reposition it so it stops where you want it to. Be aware that it can take considerable pressure to pry off some wiper arms. Good luck!

How do I adjust wiper motor to linkage on a '01 Chevy Silverado I replaced the motor turned the wiper switch on then off then installed the blades but when I switch on the wipers turn counterclockwise?

A wiper motor cannot just be installed, you must also adjust the linkage. With the wiper motor in place and the linkage disconnected, turn the wiper motor ON briefly while you watch the motion of the motor shaft, then turn it off and let it seek it's natural "park" location. Now operate the wipers manually by moving the linkage, and before you connect the linkage to the motor, make sure the linkage is in the right position and will operate properly.

Would a seized rear wiper arm on a ford expedition drain the battery?

Yes, it has happened to me with my 2007 Ford Expedition. If the wiper is siezed in a position other than the normally off position, the motor will continue to strain to return to the off position. If this happens to you, make sure the rear wiper is turned off, then open the glass in the rear liftgate. This will disengage the motor from the wiper, and the motor should rotate counterclockwise to the off position. If the rear wiper is not too siezed, you should be able to manually move the wiper back to its off position before closing the rear glass. This will align the wiper drive pin on the inside of the glass with the drive slot in the motor. These need to be aligned to be able to close the glass. The faulty wiper arm assembly will likely need replacing.

Pop up the plastic cover that is attached to the base of the wiper arm. This will expose the 13mm nut that holds the arm to the wiper transmission. Loosen the nut and wiggle the arm lose, adjust it to where you want it and tighten the nut back up.

Is there a way to set the positioning of the drivers side wiper arm using the linkage?

With no make, model, and year included in the question, it's hard to say for sure. On most vehicles, though, no, the linkage has no adjustment for that purpose. With most vehicles, adjustment of the wiper position is accomplished by adjusting the position of the wiper arm on its pivot. Usually you just remove the wiper arm from the pivot and replace it in the position you want.

Reset the wiper arm. At the bulkhead end of the arm is a big nut on a tapered shaft. (might be under a cover). Slacken the nut and loosen the arm from the tapered shaft. Move the wiper to a different position on the windshield and tighten the nut. Test wiper to see that blade returns to the new position.

In your 1992 Caravan rear windshield wiper is running all the time unless you pull out the fuse How can you fix it?

It's possible that the wiper switch is bad, but most likely it's the wiper motor itself. Wiper motors have an internal switch that only turns off when both the manual switch is turned off AND the wiper blade is in the park position. If the wiper motor cannot sense that it has hit the park position, it will run continuously.
